Summer is just around the corner, and everyone is on the hunt for the vacation outfits to end all others. Chanel has shown their current Cruise Collection for this summer, and it is a pool of simple beauty sent from the gods.
This latest collection for Chanel is unlike many others in the fact that is exploring the more relaxed side of Chanel fashion. When designing this collection, Mr. Lagerfeld talked about the differences between the way modern clothing and ancient clothing are designed and return to a more relaxed, body conscious design theory.
“The Greeks had something that was lost later the body was not something that was hidden or ashamed of like it turned out in later centuries. Like today the body was important, the body went with the clothes. Everything was easy and not contrite and this was a modern message for me of serendipity.” – Karl Lagerfeld
The modern Chanel woman is one who is not only chic and refined, but she is effortlessly so. This collection represents the chameleon that is the Chanel woman. Karl took us into the past to show us the future of casual elegance. Below are some of these simple, yet beautiful pieces.
